  1. Ive checked my records and I visited this pub in September 2005 and it felt like it was on its last legs then. If it only lasted until the end of the year it wouldn't surprise me. Its amazing that by the looks of it somebody else took it on after the info on the last post?
  2. As part of my research I thought it would be interesting to hear peoples memories of that glorious moment when you walk in a pub and get successfully order an alcoholic drink for the first time! In my case it was The Globe one month before my 16th birthday. It was also the only time I visited the pub when it was in its original 4 room configuration. I had a pint of Stones and it went down well!
  3. Thanks Dave- info very hard to come by on this place. I visited in 2005 and it must have shut some time between then and 2010. Thanks again
  4. Dave H Hi I'm new to the group but would you be happy for me to possibly use the picture of the Arbourthorne pub in 1971 in a book I am working on about pubs in Sheffield? If you are able to scan this it would be much appreciated. I'd be interested in any other info that you have on this pub/ picture and i'd be happy to receive any info via here or by my email - sheffieldpubs@outlook.com . I will ensure that a picture credit is included if the photo is used in the publication. Thanks Jamie
  5. I am seeking info on this place that was often thought to have the best view from a beer garden in Sheffield. I visited in 2005 and it is now a Chinese take away. Does anyone know the year it opened/ closed or have any memories/ pictures they could share as part of my Sheffield pubs project? I understand at some point in the 90's there was a landlord called Mick?! pm me or email sheffieldpubs@outlook.com
  6. I am researching pubs in Sheffield that have closed and I wondered if anyone had any memories/ pictures they could share of this pub that shut around 1968? There are a couple of pictures on picture Sheffield but not much else Please feel free to share on here, pm me or email sheffieldpubs@outlook.com Thanks Jamie
  7. Hi,If anyone has any further memories to share of The Haychatter or any pictures they could share of this pub I'd be grateful as part of a project I am undertaking. Im also happy to receive by e-mail sheffieldpubs@outlook.comThanks
  8. As part of some research I am doing I have been looking at the history of the Myrtle Inn on Alexandra Rd. I assume that this and the houses at the bottom end of Alexandra Rd were cleared as part of this scheme at some point between 1978-1981. I say this because the pub features in 2 episodes of the thirdseries "I didn't know you cared"! Im not 100% they used the interior but it looks pretty realistic. Does anyone have any memories of the pub or its demolition they could share?
  9. Are these pubs featured in the series? I have seen reference to the Myrtle at Heeley but not these 2. I'd be interested if you knew which episodes they featured in.
  10. I've just been doing some research on this pub and stumbled across this thread elsewhere on the forum- The BFI now has the film on their website that you can watch! Hopefully many shots of the pub will feature! http://player.bfi.org.uk/film/watch-wings-of-mystery-1963/
  11. Thanks Richard- slowly piecing some info together on this place
  12. I am looking for info on this pub that appears to have very little info available. In Tuffrey's recent book there is a picture of Ron Ward the landlord in 1975 and that's it. I understand this was in the top floor and I think out of the 3 major complexes (HP, Kelvin, Park Hill) this was the only one above ground level. Pictures particularly welcome

  14. Too right! I always wonder who owns places like this and can be bothered / afford to keep it boarded up. I wonder if any urban explorers have been in? Although I understand this is the only entrance
  15. Thanks for the link. I saw this earlier as well as a pic from the other side of the building. Strange how I posted is last night and then it appeared in The Star today!
  16. Hi, I am in the process of doing some pub research and for a relatively (albeit short- lived) pub/ bar this place seems to have very little information about it. I have found some info on Sheff Forum (http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=806830) and it would appear that 'it never took off' or/ because 'it was full of skinheads'. That said, I went in with my granddad one afternoon in the mid 80's when I was about 6/7 years old! Does anyone have any info or any pictures? The picture in the Leversidge book isn't great and I have never seen a picture of the interior...Any help appreciated!
  17. More recently managed by the 'two Ronnies' for many years who left around 2003/2004...all downhill from then on and a travesty this place is being turned in to flats
  18. What is standing where 5/6/7 stood? Was it demolished? What took it's place???
  19. I thought i'd posted it in the right bit...but ooops...I was on about The Travellers at Attercliffe
